The classic weekend is open to all who would like to attend. While scanning the crowd it appeared that 15-20% of the attendees were 20-something through baby boomer age. The remainder of the group was older; my estimate may be off, so if the folks at SC read this I hope they correct me. The most surprising aspect of SC... More

Hi Paul! Thanks for taking the time to review Sandy Cove. You're pretty close in your estimate of age who attended - but the weekend is geared toward those of any age who enjoy a "Classic" Bible Conference experience. Hope you had a relaxing weekend! And, yes, call early is good advice! More

Sandy Cove exceeded my expectations in so many ways. It started even before we got to the property with the pre-arrival emails they sent letting us know how to best prepare for the experience. When we arrived there we were treated to warmth and kindness throughout - and we learned a lot in the morning sessions about our relationship with... More

I came back from vacation at Sandy Cove renewed and transformed from inside out. My heart has opened up to love others more and I made new friends. I'm an introvert, but I was able to make some new friends at the resort and shared laughs and concerns. Victorie

This is a place of peace, of refreshment. As for the accommodations, they are tasteful and clean and the staff was very courteous. I was there mid-week for a solo retreat and I could not have picked a better place.

Our lives are a bit hectic! One daughter works retail and the other at an amusement park. Planning a summer vacation was going to be difficult.

My trip to Sandy cove amazing. The site of the Cheasapeake Bay couldn't have been any more beautiful. And the many activities they had for my four children. I really loved the bonding time. We had 3 meals a day and every meal my family and I sat at a round table and socialized.

We had a lovely room at a beautiful lodge on the Chesapeake Bay. This is a relaxing place to stay, and we'd go back again. Osprey were flying overhead as we walked the path along the bay, and we saw several nests. It's very quiet and peaceful here.
